I love to see pictures of Basenjis, they are so cute. I love the tiny guy also,what kind is it. My B, Sahara has the same toy you have in the picture, I got her the smaller one when she was a puppy and taught her how to fetch with it. Now she has the one that is the size of your baby's, and she loves to play fetch. I had read that B's will not play fetch, they don't care to learn how. NOT!!!!!! We play everyday and I have the scratched hardwood floor to prove it. haha!!!!! I told my hubby that I have to get some scratch cover polish for the floor, and we will play outside. It is getting warmer here in NC, so Sahara will actually play outside. My B hates the cold, and getting wet, in case you don't know they don't like water. I have finally gotten Sahara to go out and potty when it's raining, she gets a treat when she comes back in and she knows it. You will find that B's are the smartest dogs, they actually understand when you talk to them, they understand English. Good Luck with your Baby, he will love you like no other.
